Sample Press Releases

Get Publicity for Your Club!

Want to get more media coverage for your club? A press release is a fast, effective and inexpensive way to get more attention for your club’s service projects, fundraising events and success stories. It’s also a great way to attract new members who want to be part of the great work you do.

We’ve made it easy to spread the word about your club by providing sample releases that can be quickly and easily customized to include your club’s news and events. Just follow these simple steps:

  1. Download an appropriate press release template below and replace the bold sections with information about your club.

  2. Find a contact or reporter at your community newspaper or broadcast outlet.

  3. Send out your press release today.

Be sure to add a club contact in the press release for follow-up questions and to provide additional details.

Don’t forget to include club information (contact information, meeting time and location, etc.) in every release to attract new members!


Service Projects

  • Club Project – Promote your upcoming service project or event.
  • Fundraiser – Make your Candy Day, White Cane or club fundraiser a success by sharing the news with your community in advance.
